How Smart Is Smart Water?

Don’t Be Fooled! There is Nothing Smart About Smartwater

Bottled water isn’t the fancy water you’ve been led to believe. In fact,  40 percent of bottled water is actually regular tap water.  The same is true for Smartwater, manufactured by Glacéau.

The water in the SmartWater bottle isn’t anything special.  It’s not going to make you healthy or give your body nutrients any more than any other water would.

Did You Know…

  • Image result for water documentaryGlacéau’s ‘SmartWater’ is owned by the Coca-Cola Company?
  • There is a very quiet (hush-hush) government requirement being adopted in states and counties across the USA that requires homeowners with natural well water access to register their wells with the water company and put a meter on their well.  At this time, they are not charging for access to the property well water.  But everything is in place to implement a usage fee.
  • Is it illegal in some states to collect rain water?
  • Fracking for natural gas is introducing chemicals into natural water aquifers across the united state and these chemicals cause major organ and system issues for people and animals… and these chemicals will remain, unadulterated for generations?
  • Social Economists listed water as the next “commodity” for the first time in the 1990’s.

Smartwater is sourced from tap water

According to manufacturer Glacéau, Smartwater typically starts as municipal (that is, tap) water. It ends up as “vapor distilled water with minerals added for great taste.”
They run the water through charcoal, disinfect the water and then add electrolytes back into the water. There are other processes that take place to help the water taste better.

Smart water is overpriced and there’s nothing really “smart” about it.

The Dangers of Distilled Water

Image result for distilled waterSmartwater is distilled water. Distilled water is a type of purified water.  Distilling strips water of important minerals found naturally in well water.

Without these minerals, the body tries to balance the chemical equation of water absorption and pulls minerals from the body.  Paavo Airola wrote about the dangers of distilled water in the 1970’s when it first became popular…

“Distilled water is totally devoid of all minerals, and prolonged use of it may leach out the body’s own mineral reserves and lead to severe mineral deficiencies and such diseases as osteoporosis, diabetes, tooth decay and heart disease.”

Smartwater Contains Electrolytes

Image result for smart waterElectrolytes are the body’s essential ions, of which the most important are sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride and calcium.  In fact, Smartwater contains fewer electrolytes than most tap water.

As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner,  “spin” marketing campaigns by manufacture companies selling specialized waters offer “scientific” additives that will help balance our body.

I find more people come through my door sick… and drinking some health bottle full of colors, dyes, and manufactured chemicals marketed to fix some health issue with an easy button.  “Just pop this top and drink and you’ll be healthy.”  … it’s just spin and marketing.

Drink good water…

waterIf you have bad water… and I mean the kind of water we grew up on in Southern California.  You know the kind… where you can actually see floating things.  And even if you have pretty clear water but it’s full of chlorine and chemicals.  Get online and research some water purifiers. The investment pays for itself.

And if you like the taste of fruit infused waters, check out the natural Water Zinger infuser.  It’s one of the best water bottles I own.  I can choose to blend up my backyard herbs, like lemon balm, raspberry or goji leaves… and mix them with my lemon water in the morning.

Seriously… you go get one of these.  I like the both the citrus base and the grinder base.  And I would recommend the sports top with the straw.  It’s easier to drink from when you’re traveling.
